and failure of congress to come together on a bipartisan basis to some of a problem. and they want us to get the problem solved and get this nation moving forward. in the early morning hours in the national w senate, we finald it. now i hope the house will do the same, follow the senate example, and 60 days from now we can approach this problem in a sober, honest mature way instead of a partisan fashion. that's what the american people expect. i took a look, incidentally, of the specific impact of this this morning's vote on my state of illinois and for the record, over 5 million i will i will families will be spared a tax increase under the agreement that we passed in the early morning hours. almost all of them, the working families we described earlier. without an agreement, the average family in illinois would have faced an increase in taxes of more than $2,000. half a million families in my state will continue to receive college tuition tax credits making it easier to send their kids to college. as much as $1,000 of assistance each year, which i'm sure is a helping hand. 1.5 million illi

the center that can work together and get along. that's always been a problem in congress. it's only gotten worse in recent years. and as far as productivity, it has to do with divided government. we're not getting along very well because of what i've described. and moving forward, that is the political dynamic. we're going to have the same situation in the new congress that we have in this congress. president obama is still president. the senate is controlled by democrats, the republicans control the house. they have to find a way to work together for the good of the country. >> well, we can only hope so. congressman jason altmire, thank you so much. good luck, sir. happy new year. >> thank you. happy new year. >>> the party to rival all parties last night. in new york city, hundreds of thousands packing new york's times square to watch the crystal ball drop and ring in the start of 2013. and believe me, they had to want to be there. it was cold! ♪ >>> back to the fiscal cliff. all but five republican senators voted to pass the bill put together by senator mcconnell and vice president bi

, political posturing, and the failure of congress to come together to solve problems on a bipartisan basis. we need to move forward. in the early mornings, the senate achieved that. should have been long ago, i understand ag, but we achieve this. i hope we can now approach this in a sober, honest, mature way. i took a look of the specific impact of this morning's vote on my state. 5 million families will be scared a tax increase, almost all of them the working families are described earlier. without an agreement, the average family would have faced an increase in taxes of more than $2,000. half a million families in my state will continue to receive college tuition tax credits, as much as $1,000 of assistance each year, which i am sure is a helping hand. families raising children will continue to benefit from the child tax credit, a yearly savings of about $1,000 on average. nearly a quarter of a million families benefited from the early in pumps -- from the earned income tax credit last year. thousands of illinois children will continue to have access to school readiness programs like hea

together enough votes, leaders of both parties get together enough votes to pass this in the house. house democrat -- still operating under the 112th congress, the last congress. the new one won't be sworn in until later this week. republicans have a healthy majority, even if there is significant number of democrats who vote for this, you know, they're going to need many republicans to cross over. and so what they're doing now with the democrats is that joe biden's trying to convince his own members not to break off because there are a lot of liberals who simply don't like this either and say they don't like the idea, for example, of keeping tax cuts in place for americans and households making up $450,000. they think that's simply too high. >> we'll be watching closely. obviously going to come back to you as the developments warrant. a lot is taking place behind the scenes. of course in front of the cameras as well as they play out their own version trying to come up with something to avert the fiscal cliff. the senate did make a decision, came up with a plan but of course the house has

of -- and house republicans have to band together because house democrats are not going to support those spending cuts and it is true. congress had a long time to deal with this, even since the election they had two months, waited until the last second. boehner couldn't pass the so-called plan b bill. he lost a lot of leverage on this. this is very tricky for john boehner and his lieutenant. they have a relatively narrow house majority, polls show that the fiscal cliff blame would be mostly on them, not the president. not on democrats. that might change. but this is a very risky move if we go well into january with this unresolved. >> and you got to wonder if the house republicans are kicking themselves for not passing the plan b, which allowed for tax rates on people making a million or more since the figure that passed was significantly less at 400,000. bob cusack, thank you. we appreciate you being with us. >> thanks, deb. >>> well, developing this hour in alaska, on a shallow and rocky shore line near the uninhabited kodiak island, a huge oil rig has run aground. it has run aground. the coast

they could have put together at the last minute. >> as i mentioned in the intro, you're leaving the congress. you've been there a long time. you sent out an e-mail last week telling supporters you're going to continue to be active and when i saw that, the first thing i asked was whether you're planning on running for office again any time soon? >> well, you know, talk to my wife about that. the answer is that i don't have any immediate plans to run for office. i'll be making some announcements in the next couple days. rather than worrying about myself in the last couple months since i knew that i wouldn't be returning, i'm concerned about the country, so i've been focusing on the job that i have now and when the new congress is sworn in on thursday, then i'll start to focus on what my plans are for the new year. >> congressman kusinich, thanks so much. it's been a real pleasure covering you on capitol hill, your run for president and we wish you all the best. >> thank you, happy new year to you and all your viewers. thank you. >>> it wouldn't be a new year's eve celebration without anderson

together. he wanted peace without any territory which, of course, didn't happen. now, just two weeks after clay's speech, the 30th congress convened in washington, and guess who was there? abraham lincoln. abraham lincoln heard clay's speech in lexington because he was visiting the town on his way from springfield to washington, d.c.. he was visiting mary's family in lexington and while he was there, he got to hear henry clay speak. it was a tremendous thing for lincoln. lincoln always idolized clay calling him the ideal politician, and to have the opportunity to actually hear clay speak was a huge thing for him. lincoln, when he was young, carried around a book of clay's speeches and read them to himself. when he was a young man, he was the president of the clay club and asked henry clay to speak in springfield, and he didn't come. this was lincoln's opportunity to meet the politician he respects and admires the most, and he heard clay give a speech against the war: perhaps t nos the surprising when lincoln's in washington, rather than talking about tariffs or economic issues that motivat

crew. i suspect mr. banner will be able to put the deal together. he will not like that he will lose possibly 100 votes and will have to deal with more democratic votes. that will weaken him for the 113th congress. host: on that point, here is the american majority action, the conservative group, who wrote this ahead of the senate vote this morning -- caller: there is a lot of validity in that. the $1 million -- that was a pipe dream. it was a test vote. everybody in washington understands that. the american people do not understand a lot of that. that is unfortunate. thank god for shows like you guys do, and the valley -- and a valuable message and education you provide. that was a general test vote. it was a pipe dream. at the end of the day, mr. boehner and newt gingrich has been very public about this -- sure, it is not a great glorious, right-wing wind, but anybody worth their accounts -- their pounds and if, if you're making over $400,000 in a household, that is a win for republican families and people that make tons of money. i am sympathetic to boehner's position. he will not
